A birthday celebration in honor of Nikola Tesla was held on Sunday, July 10 at his last remaining laboratory, in Shoreham, New York. The Long Island Chapter of the IEEE honored the memory of Nikola Tesla by designating the Wardenclyffe Laboratory as a historic site. The event included a simulcast link with the Nikola Tesla Museum celebration in Belgrade, Serbia, a HAM radio special station for the day, live music, and light refreshments.
“The Wardenclyffe Lab is making great progress toward its transformation into a museum celebrating Nikola Tesla and his amazing contributions to science,” remarked Assemblyman Anthony Palumbo. “We were able to pass legislation this year providing thousands in tax credits to the non-profit Friends of Science East–helping to further jump start the project. We all look forward to the completion and opening of this historical gem.”
